I Welcome Mahama's Promise To Establish Morgues For Muslim Communities
LISTEN SEP 22, 2020

I am a Muslim and I understand how we want the dead bodies of our relatives to be treated.

I lost my elder brother in 2010 at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. I got the ward and I was told his remains have been sent to the mortuary. I went and met my brother on a bare floor, naked. That is where I cried my eyes out.

Aside from that, the frustration my family and I went through before the body was released to us is something I would not wish for even my worse enemy.

No true Muslim will ever want the dead body of his/her relative to be handled and treated in such manner.

I, therefore, welcome the promise of H.E John Dramani Mahama, to establish morgues in accordance with Islamic customs and practice in our Zongo Community.

With that, the dead bodies of our relatives will be handled with the respect it deserves.

My mother, wife, sister etc will not be handled by a male(stranger) attendant at the mortuary.

You are a Muslim, you can choose to mock this great idea because of politics, that is none of my business.
